Keep the Exposition Articles Coming!

Hey guys,

I'm going to post a new surprise review tomorrow. In the meantime, please keep emailing me those exposition articles for our new study! (I've already received some superb submissions. I'm really excited about it.)

Email me (or post on your blog) 3 examples:

* One BAD example of exposition.
* One good VERBAL example of exposition.
* One good NON-VERBAL example of exposition.

Here's my example. We'll begin August 1.

The greatest piece of exposition I've ever seen came from an episode of "Corner Gas", which you'll be able to see soon on WGN.

I forget the exact details and I can't find a script online, but it's something like this:

After a fade-in, Hank is in the stands at a baseball game with some others and he's telling them what has happened in the game. He finishes with something like, "But I don't know why I'm telling you since you've been watching the game, so I wonder why I'm even saying this."

Hank's a loveable fool, so it works. It's hilarious.

Hehehe... Someone posted somewhere else that the Simpsons pulled a very similar joke like that. You should participate, man!
